Festivals - Melbourne

sunny 27 °C

Melbourne's Moomba Festival is an institution. It is Australia's largest community festival which attracts more than one million people each year.
With the famous Moomba Parade, thrilling Birdman rally, vibrant carnival atmosphere and countless free shows and activities. Moomba truly is the people's festival

Birdman Rally amazes spectators as a flock of entrants don their inventive homemade flying devices and jump from the banks of the Yarra to see who can soar the furthest for charity.
A longstanding feature of the festival, the Birdman Rally is packed with just the right amount of silliness and loads of goodwill as participants compete as either Hawks or Penguins for the Charity Jackpot.
Fundraising efforts of our Birdmen contribute towards extra ‘distance’ being added to their score. For every $100 raised over and above the $500 minimum, Birdmen will be awarded an extra metre to their technical flight distance.

Moomba Masters Championships
Throughout the weekend, the world’s best waterskiers and wakeboarders strive to win at the biggest international waterski competition and the first stop in the 2015 Nautique Wake Series – the Moomba Masters Championships.
The series focuses on Slalom
and Jumps

Port Phillip Muscle Fest
